    We are planning on going to O'hana to celebrate my dad's birthday. Although, my 4 year old is extremely picky and will not eat any of the food offered. Will they have other options for him? If not, will we have to pay for him

    Aloha and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lindsey!

    ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, is my favorite restaurant and I recall those times when my son was a picky eater. By mentioning that to the Server upon our arrival, the Chef would come to our table to speak with us about accommodating him, allowing us all to hang loose as they say in Hawai'i.  

    Lindsey, if you have Special Dietary Requests, then I advise you to:
    -Stipulate all food intolerances and allergies during your booking online,
    -Inform a Cast Member of any dietary requirements if calling to make your dining reservation at (407) 939-3463,
    -Inform your Server at ‘Ohana upon your arrival,
    -Contact the Special Diets Team at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com where every effort will be made to accommodate your child.

    Mom’s Tips:
    1) Surprise your father with a custom cake via Shop By Occasion at Disney Floral & Gifts.
    2) Check out Disney’s Planning for Pre-School Kids for suitable touring suggestions with your child and a helpful Preschool Parents' Guide available for download.

    We hope this information is helpful, Lindsey and wish your father a very Happy Disney-style Birthday!
